Project need

Point Woronzoff Overlook is one of the most popular places for Anchorage residents and visitors to go and view the sunset and the inlet. Additionally, it is a popular access point and trailhead for the Coastal Trail. The park facilities at this location currently do not meet the demands of the users and improvements are necessary for park user and trail safety. Currently, there is a very steep and dangerous trail to the beach. The trail is severely eroding. Additionally the parking area needs asphalt and parking barrier repair.

Project status

Park Maintenance performs monthly safety inspections and repairs as necessary.

1) Woronzof is spelled with only one 'f' — please correct the typo. 2) As requested previously, Turnagain Community Council requests AMENDING the Scope language, to read as follows: Funds will be used to replace broken and missing parking barriers and bollards or use boulders in place of bollards, build a sustainable trail to the beach, repair the asphalt and drainage in the parking lot, replace ID signage with appropriate wording ("Point Woronzof Overlook"), and add a dog waste station. Any other items identified and submitted to the Anchorage Park Foundation during their 2011 Report Card community input survey should be considered. This is a high priority for the the Turnagain Community Council.

This is Turnagain Community Council's #4-ranked Parks & Recreation project. 1) As requested in 2015, please correct the spelling to "Woronzof." Please also see our 2015 request to AMEND the Project Scope language, and to ADD language to the Project Need statement.
